Watch This Fascinating Video Interview With Star Wars‘ Mark Hamill

He might not be in Star Wars: The Force Awakens for all that long, but Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker is who drives the entire narrative—everybody in The Force Awakens is looking for him, and we know he'll be a huge part of Episode VIIIIn this 70-minute interview with the Oxford Union, Hamill discusses his frustration with the end of Return of the Jedi (he wanted to see Luke Skywalker as an actual Jedi), why George Lucas's decision to start the entire saga with Episode IV was brilliant, the savvy way Darth Vader's introduced in A New Hope, what might have happened to Luke in the years between Episode VI and VIII, and more. Hamill is a wonderful interview subject, and this wide-ranging Q&A (which is really mostly A, as Hamill is endearingly loquacious), delivers.
